Survivors of abuse may often go into over-justifying our boundaries more than being poor at communicating boundaries in general.

You might not feel very comfortable with doing it, but in reality, setting boundaries is about communicating what you want and don’t want.

Main Take-Aways

  • We may be inclined to over-justify our boundaries
  • Abusers are notoriously bad at respecting boundaries
  • Setting and maintaining boundaries is a skillset you can learn
  • Happy healthy people typically accept boundaries
  • While targetted by an abuser your boundaries are constantly under attack, so perhaps you are exhausted from defending your boundaries (rather than bad at it)

I am glad to tap into my personal experiences to help those who are living in toxic relationships whether with parents, partners or in their professional life. We need to make the world more aware of the devastating effects of emotional abuse and help more people on their way to heal and thrive.
